LAYC to Restore Park View Rec Center Mural This Summer

May 13, 2019

The mural at the Park View Recreation Center when it was completed in 2010

This summer, the Latin American Youth Center will be restoring and touching up the mural on the south side of the Park View Recreation Center. The mural is ten years old and is beginning to suffer from pealing paint, etc. The lead artist for the restoration project will be Luis Peralta, with funding coming from the DC Commission of the Arts & Humanities.

This project will not change the design of the mural, however there may be an attempt at touching up the portraits so that they are more accurate representations of the  notables they honor — namelyn Malcolm X, Thurgood Marshall, Mary McLeod Bethune, and Frederick Douglass.
